I’ve known Ed “Hazukashii” Howell since the early 1990s. I remember someone telling me his hash name meant “bashful” in Japanese, but the word I’d use is “modest,” by which I mean he doesn’t brag on himself, even though he does a lot for hashing and hashers.

We didn’t have a hare for April until about a week before the scheduled date, when Is It In Yet? told me he and Deep Dish would like to do it. Great joy and a flurry of announcements ensued, and on Sunday the 17th we turned up at Capn’ Crotch’s house for a bash.

We met at Tucson’s Himmel [...]
